Diy Ghost Gunner Updates 1911 Jig for More Caliber Compatibility Rob Curtis April 20, 2019 Join the Conversation The Ghost Gunner 2 is a desktop CNC mill that finishes user-supplied 80% lowers of AR-15s and AR-10s (and 1911s) using the included DDCut software. Ghost Gunner Desktop Milling Machine The Ghost Gunner 2 ecosystem receives an upgrade with today's release of the company's updated 1911 jig. The new jig replaces the original, 45 ACP caliber-only jig with an update that holds 9mm, 10mm, 40S&W, and 38 Super caliber 1911 80% frames. Connect the Ghost Gunner to your Mac or PC and using the corresponding accessory jig and tooling, the microwave oven-sized machine finishes 80% AR-15, AR-10, and 1911 lowers and frames made of aluminum or polymer. The GG2 is a full-featured desktop CNC mill that accepts open-source milling code and cuts anything else, as long as it's aluminum or softer. You just need to find (or write your own) g-code and supply a jig to hold the workpiece in the machine. Jig Upgrades The new Delrin 1911 jig replaces the original aluminum jig and includes a few changes that allow the installation of 1911 frames in multiple calibers. The change from metal to Delrin eliminates the chance of a failed probing operation that could occur when the anodizing on the older aluminum jig was worn or damaged. Improvements to the 1911 milling code include soft probing and an extended probing for the commander size frame. The new 1911 jig is available for pre-order as a kit including tooling and other accessories for $245. It's also offered alone for those that already have the tooling and costs $200. This machine is commonly confused with the hot topic of 3D printing guns, but this is a desktop CNC milling machine, not a 3D printer; it cuts metal and polymer.
